from Surly Sheep Patterns
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Cable Owl Gloves
Cable Owl Gloves
Cable Owl Gloves
Cable Owl Gloves
Cable Owl Gloves

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knit in the Round
  • Basic Cables

Pattern Description:

The Cable Owl Gloves have been newly revised to include all adult sizes, ranging from XS to XL. The edge variations for the gloves include the ribbed edge, and rolled edge and the newly added garter stitch edge (my personal favorite).

These gloves are worked in the round. The pattern was created using the magic loop method; however, it can be altered for 4 double pointed needles.
The cable panel for these gloves is completely written out, line by line. There is no chart needed to follow the pattern.
